Understanding Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) Sensors in European Vehicles

Understanding Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) Sensors in European Vehicles

The tire pressure monitoring system is as easy to understand as to how to turn on your car or how to put on your seatbelt. If you notice the light come on your dashboard, it means you have an issue with your tires or the system.   If the TPMS light is solid, it means that your tires are not properly inflated. Whereas, if the light is flashing, it means that one or more of the tire sensors in the TPMS has gone bad.   Your TPMS sensors wirelessly transmit information regarding your tires to the car computer. Over time, these sensors can fail due to road hazards, like collisions, curbs, and potholes. Sometimes, the battery in them can die out too.   When you notice the flashing tire symbol on your dash, you should bring your car to the tire experts at Romay’s Auto Service. As mentioned earlier, it means that there is sensor failure in one or more tires. Ignoring the flashing light is a bad idea because you may be compromising your vehicle’s handling.

How These 3 Bad Driving Habits Can Hurt Your Audi

How These 3 Bad Driving Habits Can Hurt Your Audi

Have you ever wondered if your driving habits are causing a negative impact on your Audi’s performance? Like many other parts of our day, driving is like second nature and doesn't require much thought. The habits you have formed when learning to drive, stick with you throughout your adult life and are hard to re-learn. Your car may be suffering from these very common and damaging driving habits. Revving the Engine When your Audi has been sitting idle for a few hours, the oil from the engine compartment has mostly returned to the oil pan at the bottom of the crankcase. Moving parts need this oil for lubrication for smooth operation. If you rush the process by revving the engine prematurely from a cold start, the oil won't have had the chance to coat internal parts and can cause damage. Ignoring the Warning Lights This seems like an obvious habit that would cause vehicle damage but you would be surprised at how long people will drive with a warning light on.

Can You Use Water Instead of Windshield Washer Fluid?

Can You Use Water Instead of Windshield Washer Fluid?

Windshield washer fluid is a mixture of solvent, detergent, and other cleaning agents that help remove grime and bugs off your windshield. Almost every car has a function that spritzes out washer fluid to help you see better in fuzzy conditions. Since the chemicals in the fluid help remove grime and bugs, water is not an adequate substitute for windshield washer fluid.   Nearly all washer fluids have an antifreeze agent with a very low freezing point so that the liquid doesn't expand or burst within the pump or fluid lines in colder climates. Some washer fluids are extra concentrated and designed to be mixed with water at a particular ratio. While others are sold to be used as-is.   However, adding plain water to your windshield washer fluid reservoir may not be the play. While water may be quick and easy to grab when you're in a hurry, it may only be an acceptable temporary solution for those who live in warmer climates. Another problem that water can present is ... read more
